The building in downtown Aldergrove was decided to be demolished at a July 13 meeting

After deciding to have the Alder Inn demolished, Langley Township wants to know what residents would like to see in its space.

The municipality spent $5.4-million last June to purchase the hotel (at 27214 Fraser Hwy.) as well as two neighbouring lots.

Now, the Township is seeking the public’s input on interim uses for the 0.93 acres in wait of a long-term plan.
